MESSAGE FROM NZ POLICE
We are committed to ensure New Zealand children and young people are able to live and learn free from harm.
With this in mind Police have identified that this time of year shows an increase in suspicious activity around schools in relation to students being approached by people not known to them.
This message is designed to provide simple safety advice to children, young people, schools and communities with regard to the risks associated with children being approached by people they don’t know who offer lifts or invite them towards a vehicle.
Police advise students to walk to school in groups whenever possible and avoid routes that are out of sight from the general public. Police strongly support schools operating walking school buses and it is recommended to utilise these facilities whenever possible.
However, if approached by someone they don’t know children should be advised the following. Decline any invitation and move away from the person and vehicle immediately. If possible they should seek out other students/ known people and if safe, take a note of what the person looks like, a description of the vehicle and the registration number.
Once at their destination children should be encouraged to report the incident immediately to a teacher or parent and write down what they saw and heard whilst fresh in their memory. Also if a vigilant teacher or parent notices someone acting suspiciously around students they should take note of the person and vehicle description and any identifying features.
School staff and parents are advised to contact Police on 111 straight away and provide whatever information they can on this type of behaviour no matter how vague. Police can act on this and possibly identify patterns and trends based on the smallest amount of information.
